Are deep sea oil rigs giant hoaxes?

oil rig

In chapter 11 of the Genesis, in the Bible, it is written that people started using asphalt instead of stone to pave roads.
Is it really possible to pump oil (if it’s there) from the bottom of the deep sea?
Aaron has lots of out there ideas. It’s prudent to sift through them to find what you think is reasonable. I’m on board with peak oil being fake. The BP oil “spill” was perhaps fake to “prove” to the world that they are pumping much oil.
A very interesting book about what oil and gas are: Thomas Gold: The deep hot biosphere. The myth of fossil fuels. Copernicus Books.
Gold is one of the proponents of abiogenic formation of fossil fuels where oil is produced even deeper down in the ground than they claim the current petroleum is found. The theory of black oil residing very deep below ground would very much work in favor of the current system, industry and exploitation methods as well as ensure high extraction prices as oil still would be a “natural” resource.
The origin of oil seem full of contradictions and the biggest red flag is that we already produce synthetic oils and gasoline. As a rare “natural” resource, however, petroleum can be sold at higher prices and in a much more reliable manner. We might even finance the base material used in petroleum manufacture as it cost money to get rid of plant waste (bio-mass). It seems like a win-win situation.
